University of Iowa
I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Iowa. I ventured into Illinois for college at Bradley University where I studied chemistry and business. When it came time to apply to medical schools, I was so excited to return to my beloved Hawkeyes! I enjoyed being a part of our family medicine interest group and doing electives in the family medicine department during my fourth year. After interviewing for family medicine all over the country, I realized that no other program felt quite so much like home as the University of Iowa! My interests include women's health, pediatrics, and medical missions. After graduation, my husband, Ryan,and I got married and enjoyed some travel before starting residency. We like to take walks, go to the farmer's market, and hunt down honey crisps at the orchards in the fall.
